Well we're back home in the humidity leaving behind the cooler weather in Anaheim. We had a blast at CHA catching up with our retailers, reps and other manufacturing friends.We loved the new stencils our friends at Crafters Workshop released. It was so great to catch up with Rachel from Thermoweb who we last saw in Arizona - see her blog: www.lostintheattic.typepad.com - such a talented gal and we loved meeting Lisa Kettell who does some really interesting things with paper - http://www.faerieenchantment.blogspot.com/
But (sigh) it's back to reality and we have lots to do to get some of our new lines up to Chicago and out to stores in April 2010. This year at CHA we also launched our new Fundamentals range of cardmaking products. In this pic we showcase some of the elements you can find in the line - chipboard accents, flocked diecuts and great cardstock. We also have a range of fancies (focked and foiled transparencies), teeny tiny rub-ons, petite alphabets and lots of other stuff you can see on our website: www.rubyrock-it.com
Cardmaking has taken off dowunder in recent months and judging from the interest we had at CHA you guys are embracing it too. I have to say there is nothing better than receiving a handmade card on a birthday or other special occasion. Years ago I worked for American Greetings and loved merchandising new card lines. I cannot remember the last time I actually bought a card now though as I have turned my hand to cardmaking in a big way over the last few months. This is a little stressful at Xmas time when 30 cards have to be made and I have 2 days to do it but I'm always glad I made the effort when they're all finished! We have some great project sheets for stores to get them started with this new line so drop us an email if you'd like some more info on this: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week scrappin!
